I was feeling very fall despite the almost-Christmas time frame we’re currently in, but I still wanted something fun and fall and nothing could be more fall than apple cider. Granted, I don’t actually like apple cider by itself, but I was hoping for an apple-pie type taste and was not disappointed.
So pomegranates are finally in season – and actually looking good and not just finally on the shelves. So I decided to make that recipe that inspired me all the way back when I started my baking adventures. So I returned to the Pomegranate Green Tea Cupcakes from chockylit. I used the same green tea cupcake recipe as I did on round 1, and while I was inspired by chockylit’s frosting I ended up being a bit squicked by the uncooked egg-whites as a foam thing and made a somewhat soupy cream cheese frosting instead.
